Welcome to our habitat!

We are a small donations -funded sanctuary, rescue center and rehab hospital in Marathon, in the Middle Keys , Florida. In the Spring of 2017 we kicked off our ambitious but necessary fundraising project, Flying Forward to help us relocate our sanctuary and rebuild our habitat. We hope you’ll take a look at our work through this website or plan a live visit and perhaps considering supporting our efforts.
